We just ate there today, doner kebab was ok but came with dry old french fries. Their homemade yogurt had some sfter taste. We paid 81 TL which is very high comparing to better places .

With so many unmissable attractions within a mere
stroll of each other – and all set around the site of
an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an
overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a

relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to
